About the Seminar
Energy is recognized as a major
drive for contemporary economic and social development. The increase of
world population along with the improvement in living standards in developing
countries gives rise to proportional increase in world demand in electric
power. In view of the increased depletion of fossil resources and the deterioration
of environmental indicators, more reliance on alternative energy resources
is underway including the nuclear power. Nuclear power constitutes appreciable
component of world electricity generation. The number of currently operating
nuclear units is 447 producing ~16% of the global installed power.
In Egypt as a country of fast growing
population, an ever increasing energy gap adversely affects economic, social
and developmental atmosphere yielding less optimistic view to the future.
Light water reactors (and especially
pressurized water reactors) are considered among the most safety proven
nuclear power reactors constituting more than 85% (61%) of operating units
The seminar aims at providing a forum
for discussion and opinion exchange between scientists, engineers and policy
makers on the current status of utilizing nuclear power in electricity
generation. The seminar bears its importance as Egypt is taking steps to
build its 1st NPP at the Dabaa site on the Mediterranean coast adopting
a long range policy of energy security supported by national scientific
and technological development.
ENPA Directory Board welcomes participation
in the seminar by presenting contributions, and taking part in discussions.
We are looking for ideas and comments aiming to formulate appropriate recommendations
on the subject.
Talks and lectures can be presented in Arabic
or English. We hope to collect the seminar activities on a CD and distribute
it to registered participants.
- Sustainable energy as development indicator.
- Status of world nuclear power generation.
- Generations of pressurized water reactors (PWRs).
- Nuclear safety issues in PWRs.
- Environmental aspects of energy consumption.
- The Egyptian program for nuclear electricity generation
- An outlook to the future.
- Towards a balanced energy mix.
ENPA Directory Board cordially invites
interested persons to participate in the seminar activities. The participation
fee for Egyptians is:
100 EGP for ENPA members and 150 EGP for non-ENPA members.
The participation fee for non Egyptians is 100 US$.
